sick kite really good range. i would go with the 10 though it is a lot better kite all round super fast almost as much power it just depends on how heavy you are and what wind your going to be riding in. 10 is the best size

I have it. Great kite and turns as fast as the Torch 9 2008. Way better than the Torch 12m 2008.

Very aggresssive and gets more nervous, powerful and performing with stronger winds.

Happy with it.

yep its super fast turning, i have 10m 09 and borrowed a 12 for a heat and forgot what size it was. its so fast and responsive, no delay in the turns. it doesnt feel big at all

This kite is sick, the good thing about this kite is they have only made minor changes to this kite and they have all been slight improvements from the 07 model.

Like they say if it works dont #uck with it.
It is the ultimate C kite.

Thanks.

I weigh around 83 kilos or 180 pds

I ordered a 12m is the 10m a good kite to complete the quiver or should I consider the 9m?

Would a 12 be a good choice for me? I weigh around 90 kilos, ride a TT sol 06 130*39,5 and a Nobile Skim for the lighter days ... I have a Rebel 14 07 at the moment, and am searching for a faster kite that allows me to learn some freestyle and newscool moves. I also have a Naish V4 16 already lying in the garage for a couple of years now maybe for the lightest days (which i didn't need with the Rebel 14), but I've never used the skim board either, and I guess that with the 12 I should be able to get going at around 12 knots with the Torch 12 ...
Maybe in the future i'll buy a 9 to complete the quiver ...

Thx

12m and 10m are too close. 12m and 9m way better. My 12m does not have a low end so I ordered a Rebel 16m for that.
